Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Mitsubishi Galant Owner Comments

I have taken my 2004 Mitsubishi Galant to the dealer over 9 times for my brakes. I contacted a lawyer for the lemon law and was advised that due to my mileage I didn't qualify for a lemon return. He advised me to settle with Mitsubishi and move on. In the process of the attorney processing my settlement, my vehicle was involved in a non collision accident, we feel it was break failure, but the lawyer stated it would cost too much to prove it was break failure. I did as he stated except that I didn't move on because I can't afford another vehicle. I took my vehicle to another institute and had them inspect my vehicle, they stated to change my breaks again...I paid them to do it and I am still having the same issue with the breaks. I have been driving this vehicle for over a year with constant break issues and have not been able to resolve the problem even after spending almost $800 in breaks and rotors since November 2006. That sounds like a lemon vehicle to me. I have been ripped off my the dealer and the attorney who handled my case.
